Words and Music by William Seelye Wilson.

I've a little babe an' it looks like me.
An' umh! ain't dat picaniney flne!
Pretty white "teef "an' great thick lips,
Oh, dey is 'zactly jus' like mine.
His eyes are as black as the middle ob de night,
Dey sparkle like diamonds true;
But when he laughs he'll kill yer dead,
'Cause he'll tickle you all "frough."

"I wants ma mammy," you'll hear my precious cry;
"I'se comin' honey," to him I almos' fly!
Den he'll mos" die laffin', he's a sight ter see!
I loves ma baby, cause ma baby loves me.

When my 'ninny yells dar's de deb'l to pay;
He yaps like a 'possum in a trap;
Den I lays him across my knee
An' give his little back a slap.
Oh, den he will turn an' he'll hug his mammy so.
As sweet as a babe can be.
I love my babe! I'll tell yer why.
'Cause my baby loves me.-Chorus.

Soon my precious 'ninny will be grow'd up,
An' den mighty sorry I will be;
Nuffin' so sweet as dat black chile,
An' 'spechly when it b'longs to me.
As years dey go by an' my golly, how dey fly,
A man he will grow to be;
I'll love dat rascal den as now,
'Cause my baby loved me.- Chorus.
